Default Who Doesn't Love the Taste of...Soap?

I have found that the better I get at managing my heat and the longer I can stretch a session that my AF begins to take on a sort of "you said a naughty word and Mom just washed your mouth out with soap" taste. The flavor itself isn't soapy, but it leaves that sort of soapy'ish taste in my mouth. Like an aftertaste. I know I'm not burning it. I've burned AF before and it didn't taste like soap.

Am I doing something wrong or is this pretty much par for the course in terms in AF?

i have had it happen to me a couple times. sometimes i think i might wash my bowl out with the wrong sponge and thats the reason but it always goes away after a few minutes.

Is this a floral flavor like a jasmine or rose?

i've had this happen before, and not quite sure what went wrong... but i had to call it quits on the bowl because i'm a little burnt out on the taste of soap from after i learned my first set of curse words at school.

mmmm.... dawn brand dish soap... i can still remember the taste to this day

It happens when you try to push your session to the max, smoking AF Peach yesterday and same thing happen to me after hour 2 going for hour 3. That is why i stick to the god's tobacco like Tangiers and Nak.

This was AF Caffe Latte I was smoking. I'm guessing it was the glycerin. It was a pretty soppy batch. I stirred it up well and tried to press a bit of the juice from it before packing my bowl, but it still took on the weird soapy aftertaste. It was about an hour and a half in, maybe.

It's all good, though, for I shall soon behold the powers of Nakhla.

Nakhla can have soapy batches too. It happened with Lemon, Cardamon, and Mandarin. Just a bad batch I'm guessing...

Nakhla Jasmine is NOT SOAPY. It is very natural.
